Wet n Wild

1st Marown Wet n Wild Slide

Programme 21.08.2020

This week we are going ‘Wet n Wild’ for the last of our Summer Activity nights.

The meeting will be at Braddan Park at the same location as the grass sledging was held.

Cubs and Scouts should bring a washing up liquid bottle, or water pistol /super soaker and come dressed to get wet.

We will be supplying either burgers or hot dogs and juice, but if any children have special dietary requirements, they can bring their own food/crisps etc.

The evening will start at 6:30 and will go ahead regardless of weather, we will finish when everyone has had enough sliding/squirting, or no later than 8:00pm – whichever comes first.

There will be a gazebo for changing, so we suggest they bring a change of clothing.

There will be an opportunity for the Scouts to finish their ‘Survival Skills’ Badge on Friday/Saturday 4/5th September at MYC. The Scouts will plan their own menu and cook from scratch, light fires, build a shelter and sleep overnight in it, with Bernie and Paul staying nearby to supervise.

More info to follow, but can we ask that the Scouts use their WhatsApp Group to plan their menu, and arrange who is buying what please.

All the leaders hope the Cubs and Scouts have enjoyed the activities provided over the past 12 months, and are looking forward to bringing another year of fun and engaging programmes.


1st Marown at Apemann

Programme 07.08.2020

This week Cubs and Scouts have a session at ApeMann Adventure Playground, South Barrule Plantation.

The session is from 6:30 – 8:15 and the cost will be £10 for the low course, £15 for the high course (10 and over)

Can everyone bring insect repellent and a drink please.

Next Week

Next week we have planned a trip on the Steam Train to Port Erin and back for the Cubs and a cycle ride to Peel and back (for those who can make it). This will count towards the Cyclist Badge.

Scouts are welcome to join the Cubs on the train trip, and Cubs can join the Cycle ride if they wish. Cubs need to only cycle to Peel to gain their badge, where Scouts will need to do the return trip.

The cost of the train trip will be £8.50 for children and £17 for adults. A packed lunch will be required.

We meet at 9:45 at Douglas station, returning on the 5:00pm service. For the cycle ride we start from Marown School at 6:30, returning at around 8:30pm.

Bikes are available so long as we know in advance, please speak to Bernard 07624313612.
